    I thought I had heard something about HDMI TV connectors not working on 2011 MacBook Pros and iMacs due to the addition of Thunderbolt...

    People said the TV/converter needs to support mirroring over Thunderbolt as well. Don't quote me on that.

    Looks like you'll need to buy some new hardware, whenever such thing comes out.
